Spoon-billed Sandpiper in danger of extinction.

This story was sent to our local birding listserve. You can read a similar one, with compelling photos, at Birdlife.org also.
You know, even if they weren't such neat-looking birds, we can't let them go extinct because of our (human) impacts on the world. :( :-/ Less than 200 or 300 breeding pairs in the wild....man.
